France Group

Researcher: Cillian Moore

Joe Mulholland

About the group: The IIEA France Group is one of a number of geographical working groups within the Institute. This group analyses development of France's European policy and its implications for the European Union and for Ireland. Of particular interest to the group are elections and other political developments in France which impact the policies pursued at EU level, France’s relationship with Germany and other key partners, and France’s role in international organisations such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and NATO.
